Run and Fly sculptureGolden’s newest art piece, “Run and Fly,” was recently installed on the west side of Hwy 93, north of Pine Ridge Road. The set of three eight-foot sculptures, created by artist Joe Norman, aims to serve as an entryway into the City from the north, providing a sense of arrival to Golden.

Be sure to check out the piece while driving both directions on Hwy 93, as the silhouettes appear to change depending on the view. Travelers heading northbound will see three red-tailed hawks, while those going southbound will see a group of children running together.

To celebrate the installation, an artist meet and greet with Joe Norman will be held during the Public Art Commission’s Open House on Wed. July  10 as part of ArtsWeek Golden. For more project updates, photos and videos, visit
